Located in what was previously considered a cursed location (numerous restaurants have failed at this location), on Texas Avenue right next door to Layne's and Raising Canes, Torchy's Tacos offers a wide variety of taco creations served with local beer and all kinds of fried goodies.
The menu offers a number of different taco creations for about $3-5 a taco. All can be ordered with or without certain ingredients. Don't want onions? Ask them to hold them. It's cool. To wash down the tacos they've got local beers, from New Republic, Karboch, and Saint Arnold.
|The Lovely Spouse insisted upon green chile queso. Eating around the evil herb (cilantro) on the top the queso had a good chile flavor. I don't normally eat or even like queso but this was pretty good.|
|The Lovely Spouse got the Tuk Tuk and beef fajita. The Tuk Tuk is Thai marinaded beef with a lot of stuff and the beef fajitas are as described. Both were more than filling enough for TLS and he thoroughly enjoyed them.|
|4-5 of the Torchy's in Austin could probably fit inside this location.|
|This outdoor bar area looks like it will wonderful once the weather gets nice. The night we went it was around 35 F outside.|
Will this signal to other Austin restaurateurs that College Station is a viable satellite location for their businesses? That would be awesome if it happened.
